Motivational Quotes

Children

Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
- Friedan, Betty
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

2.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

3.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

4.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

5.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

6.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

7.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

8.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

9.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

10.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

11.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

12.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

13.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

14.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

15.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

16.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

17.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

18.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

19.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

20.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Lamb, Charles

21.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

22.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

23.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

24.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

25.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

26.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

27.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

28.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

29.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

30.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

31.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

32.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

33.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

34.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

35.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

36.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

37.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

38.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

39.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

40.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

41.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

42.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

43.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

44.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

45.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

46.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

47.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

48.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
